Fair 4.0
Had a bad experience at the restaurant
Had a bad experience with the FB Manager. I went to the restaurant with a friend for lunch but I said I would like to have a sandwich and not the buffet lunch. Before the staff could say anything he said hello hello Madam you can have sandwich and the deli restaurant for 550 rupess. What kind of a manager speak to in house guest like that. This hotel is 5 star. But it's needs slots of improvement.

Short stay
Customer service was amazing and so is the food. The morning buffet is so great. Really close to the Dutch hospital. Rooms are a bit small but the beds are so comfy.

Good Hotel to stay at.
There is only one thing that I would like to add i.e. that the food served at the pool side should be the same food served when ordering room service. We tried to order devilled beef and chips at the poolside and they said it was not available on their menu but available in room service.
Perveen, gb4 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Great location!!
I have stayed at Kingsbury in the past a couple of times. However after a year this was my first trip. Pros : Great Restaurant Staffs(harbour court), very proactive & considerate . Best Chinese restaurant in the country(Yue Chuan). Must try the dessert ( Churros). Kingsbury's food, restaurants, in-room dining are the best. Clean & well kept room. Cons : Staff is too lousy at the lobby, checkin & security. It took 45 mins to get my bags up to the room at check- in. Toiletries were missing in the bathroom. The security check at the entrance of the hotel was worst- when i put my purse & food parcel for scanning, they placed the purse, food bag on the floor once scanning was done -That was a turn off. Overall the customer service was not up to the Kingsbury standard during this visit. Recommend: The suite on the 6th floor - Room 601. The best view in Colombo.

It was very pleasant stay
Shanaka, au4 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
I normally don’t take the time to give reviews but I’ll make an exception this time because it’s one of the best hotel experiences I’ve had. Room was clean. Bed very comfortable. Big window with view to ocean plus the city. Breakfast buffet variety and quality second to none. Service outstanding. Staff well trained also friendly and personable. Pool was fantastic with plenty of deck chairs umbrellas and cocktails. Cafe specialises in awesome cakes and the coffee is gooood! Dinner at Chinese, Japanese or Bar style restaurants were ALL very good menus and under the one roof. Close to shopping. Get a car or Touk Touk from the front door. Outstanding value across the board. We will be back no question. Give this place your first priority next trip to Colombo.

Revisit a pleasure
It was good to visit the Kingsbury for the first time since Easter. My stay was excellent, with the service and friendliness better than the normal excellent I used to experience . Well done to the team. Thanks for my daily chocolates and the welcome cake. You have "raised the bar" in terms of customer experience. Challenge for you is keep it up there. Well done.
